Making a Difference in your World

We are Mandated to Go into all the World

And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15

We Achieve this by Reaching our World

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8

There is a Multiplying Effect of Ministry

And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. 2 Tim. 2:2

Reach the People You Contact

  • Have Intentional Awareness
  • Invest the Time
  • Patiently Show Love and Serve their Best Interest
  • Relate your Good Works to Jesus and Share the Good News

There is a Hall of Fame for the Unnoticed

How to Shine as a Light in a Dark Culture

1. Endure Hardship and Disentangle Yourself from the World

You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4 No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier. 2 Tim. 2:3-4

2. Practice to Compete and Follows your Convictions 

And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules. 2 Tim. 2:5

  • Example of Daniel and his Three Countrymen

But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s delicacies, nor with the wine which he drank; therefore he requested of the chief of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.   Daniel 1:8

You will either conform to your world or transform your world

3. Experience It First Yourself

The hardworking farmer must be first to partake of the crops. 7 Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things. 2 Tim. 2:6-7
